how many anglers allowed per boat 2 or three?
Rein.... 3 for this one.
My thoughts exactly :crossed Maybe lightning can strike twice!!!!!!!!!!
We are working out some of the finer details of the logistics at this point. The rules are basically going to stay the same as last year. In the rules when I hopefully am able to post them next week, they will state that fishing can happen anywhere in ENP and 10,000 Islands with the only requirements being:
1) first and foremost, that every must follow the rules of the Park and the State of Florida (critical)
2) lines in at 7am,
3) must be at post fishing awards location by a certain time on Saturday the 5th which will be in EC,
4) that at least one member of the team needs to be at the captains meeting on the evening of Friday October 4th.
Just a few other rules as we try to limit them to the have to's to reduce issues....which in 12 years of doing these, we have had very few instances of issues arising.
There are no limitations on the location of where each team departs from the morning of. If a team is late, that is not anyone elses fault. As far as coed.....we promote the ladies and kids to partake in the event and do what we can to highlight their involvement.
Once again, we hope to have the rules posted here shortly to get everyone familiar with them. The rules of this event basically follow the same ones of the other event.....www.fftseries.com if you want to get a look. Some of the main differences with this event are no tarpon, 3 anglers allowed and currently it is half the cost to get some skin in the game right now. Once I post the rules which will be completely reviewed on October 4th, it will make more sense.
And I'm gonna win Powerball this Saturday. :wink
I take back the doubling down.
Are you the guy with the Hoog?
It is,beside where the pizza place used to be, they open at 0600 so you can be on your way quick in the am.
I liked the "We don't need no bait" comment, and was going respond with they also have a good selection of arties for you folks that don't like "Gods all natural" bait brand. I have to use live bait as I need all the help I can get. :Bike
